Napa Valley fall

Sponging lees-wine onto the bilge of the new barrels

Picking some of the last grapes of the season, on To Kalon Vineyard, Oakville, Napa

Intense and fresh after 126 years; Blandy’s 1887 Verdelho

Silky smooth and yummy Cabernet Sauvignon from Pillar Rock; 2008

Edible garden, complete with edible ‘earth’

Florida sunset

Well worth the 990 step climb up to the fortress of Palimidi, above Napflio

Delicious old Moschofilero, from Boutari; usually an aromatic off dry young white, here it is nutty complex and savoury.

Sunset in Napflio
